FIRST OF  ALL,  WHY  IS   HAVING  A  PERSONAL   TRAINER  IMPORTANT? The  biggest  thing  that  I   hear  from  my  clients  is,  “I   probably  would  have  come   into  the  gym  today,  but   there’s  no  way  I  would  have   worked  that  hard.”    Hav-­ ing  a  personal  trainer   gives  you  both  expert   knowledge  for  optimal   training,  but  it  also   allows  you  to  push  your   workouts  harder  than   you  normally  would.     Along  with  that,  many   people  feel  obligated  to   attend  their  workouts   and  are  not  as  temped   to  skip  when  they  have  a   personal  trainer  count-­ ing  on  them  to  be  there.

+

WHY IS  THERE  A  TRANSITION   FROM  ONE-­ON-­ONE  PER-­ SONAL  TRAINING  TO  GROUP   TRAINING? 7KH¿UVWDQGPRVWREYLRXVUHDVRQ of  group  training  is  the  reduction   in  cost  per  session.    Whether  it   is  a  couple  that  comes  in  to  train   or  a  group  of  girlfriends,  you  can  

get a  better  value  when  you  take   the  group  training  approach.    You   DOVR¿QGWKDWWKHUHLVIULHQGO\ cont....

FMS Wellness competition between  group   members;;  this  can  cause  them  to   push  each  other  harder  than  they   would  if  they  were  by  themselves.     There  is  also  a  unique  social  ben-­ H¿WWRZRUNLQJRXWLQWKHJURXS Although  we  monitor  the  rest   time  between  sets,  every  now  and   then  there  is  some  down  time  to   catch  up  with  friends  and  build   on  your  relationships.

+

WHAT ARE  SOME  CHALLENG-­ ES  THAT  YOU  HAVE  ENCOUN-­ TERED  WITH  PERSONAL   TRAINING? We  do  monitor  the  group  size   and  like  to  keep  them  a  reason-­ able  size.    If  the  groups  get  too   big,  it  is  hard  to  focus  on  every-­ one’s  form  when  performing  an  

17

H[HUFLVH,WFDQDOVREHGLI¿FXOWWR see how  hard  people  are  pushing   themselves,  so  we  really  like  to   watch  the  group  sizes  to  ensure   they  are  not  too  big.

+

HOW DO  YOU  FORMAT  THE   ROUTINE? Depending  on  the  exercise,  either   we  will  have  the  entire  group   going  at  once,  or  we  will  section   it  off  where  one  person   goes  while  the  other  is   resting.    Sometimes  we   will  use  partner  exercises   where  it  is  critical  to  have   more  than  one  person   for  the  exercise.    In  that   case,  everyone  trains  at   the  same  time  and  rests   at  the  same  time.

+

IN A  GROUP  TRAINING   SESSION,  ARE  YOU   STILL  ABLE  TO  BUILD  A  CLOSE   RELATIONSHIP  WITH  YOUR   CLIENT? Socially,  I  think  group-­training   works  quite  well.    It  is  also  great   to  build  friendships  in  a  group   setting  compared  to  one-­on-­one   training.

WHAT ARE  THE  RATES  FOR  A   GROUP  WORKOUT? For  every  additional  person   we  add  to  the  group,  we  only   bring  the  price  up  $10,  the  total   is  the  split  between  the  group   members.    It  usually  cost  around   $17  per  training  session  with  a   three-­person  group  compared  to   a  $30  one-­on-­one  session.

BAFFLED BY BUG SPRAY

A

s concern about environmental toxins and chemicals grow, our focus turns to common household products and their safety. One product commonly used during the summer months is insect repellent. We field many questions in our office from patients who are baffled by bug spray; what is safe and effective? The most commonly used chemical in commercial insect repellents is DEET; this is used in more than 230 different products—in concentrations of up to an astounding 100 percent. DEET is a pesticide and has been associated with a variety of health problems ranging from dizziness to seizures. The American Academy of Pediatrics advises against using repellents containing more than 10 percent DEET on kids under 6 years of age. Other potential hazards can lurk in commercial bug sprays, such as the chemical permethrin, which is a neu-

19

rotoxin. At relatively high doses, its effects can include tremors, loss of coordination, elevated body temperature, aggressive behavior and learning disruption. Even when used in low doses it can cause aggressive behavior, disruption of eating habits and agitation. The Environmental Protection Agency labeled it as a carcinogen because it causes lung tumors in female mice and liver tumors in mice of both sexes. It is also implicated in chromosome abnormalities in both human and hamster cells and can hinder immune functions. If you absolutely must use a repellent, it should only be used on your clothing, never on your skin. It is far too deadly to consider using it on your skin. As more adverse health effects from toxic chemicals used in insect repellents come to light, more and more natural insect repellents are cont....

The POWER   Center  is   expected  to  be   ¿QLVKHGE\ mid-­August.

THE POWER CENTER HAS A UNIQUE SHAPE, IS THERE ANY REASON FOR THAT? This shape  replicates  the  POWER   Center  used  in  Sioux  Falls  and  is   signature  of  Sanford  POWER.    The   forty-­foot  ceiling  also  gives  us  some   clearance  room  when  working  with   our  athletes.    We  can  throw  objects   without  worrying  about  the  ceiling  get-­ ting  in  the  way. WHO IS THE TARGET AUDIENCE FOR THE POWER CENTER? Our  target  audience  is  anybody.    You   are  not  required  to  be  a  high  perfor-­ mance  athlete  to  participate  in  the   POWER  program.    In  fact,  you  are  not   required  to  have  any  prior  experience   or  knowledge  about  strength  training.     Anyone  of  any  age  and  ability  that   EHOLHYHVWKH\FDQEHQH¿WIURPRXU program  is  encouraged  to  come  out   and  train  with  us.    We  offer  one-­on-­ one  and  group  training.  This  facility  is   like  no  other  in  the  area.   cont....

We  are  going  to  tailor  our  programs   more  toward  the  athlete  than  the   active  adult  who  comes  in  off  the   street,  but  if  you  have  a  strong  desire   to  perform  at  a  higher  caliber,  we  have   a  great  program  here  at  the  POWER   Center.

IS THE POWER CENTER GOING TO BE GROUP ORIENTED OR ONE-­ON-­ONE? This  really  depends  on  the  require-­ ments  of  the  client.    With  more  space   we  are  able  to  offer  larger  group   training.    For  instance,  if  a  team  wants   to  train  together,  we  can  provide  the   staff  and  facility  for  that.    On  the  other   hand,  we  can  concentrate  on  one   individual  who  is  looking  to  improve   their  strength,  speed,  etc. HOW IS THE NEW FACILITY GOING TO ADVANCE THE POWER PROGRAM? For  one,  we  are  going  to  have  maxi-­ mal  training  surfaces.    For  instance,  if   DQDWKOHWHSOD\VDWXUIVSHFL¿FVSRUW we  have  that;͞  or,  if  you  compete  on   ice,  we  have  a  surface  for  that  as  well.     It  will  be  unique  to  have  all  forms  of   surfaces  in  one  facility  accessible  all   year  long.    Our  training  philosophy   will  stay  the  same,  but  the  facility  will   be  a  lot  more  accommodating  for  the   athlete.

WHY DID YOU JOIN THE POWER PROGRAM? Although I  was  working   out  almost  every  day,  I   was  still  getting  up  in  the   morning  and  “feeling  old.”     I  could  not  go  outside  and   keep  up  with  the  kids  and   my  energy  just  felt  sapped.     My  workout  regimen  was   composed  of  cardio  and   machine  lifts  and  it  just   wasn’t  getting  the  job   done.    I  decided  to  try  the   POWER  program  because   I  was  looking  for  more  out   of  my  workout.

AT YOUR AGE, MOST PEOPLE WOULD NOT DARE PERFORM SOME OF THE LIFTS YOU ARE DOING. WHY IS IT SAFE? The trainers  here  are   great.    They  know  exactly   how  to  ease  you  into  the   program.    In  fact,  they   made  me  lift  just  the   bar  for  a  couple  weeks   until  my  form  was  perfect.     Then,  they  slowly  added   weight  and  monitored  my   lifts  to  make  sure  I  main-­ tained  proper  form  and   technique.    The  trainers   truly  make  a  difference  in   this  program.    If  I  had  to   do  this  by  myself,  I  would  

probably be  injured  or   burnt-­out  by  now.   WHAT BENEFITS HAVE YOU SEEN FROM THE PROGRAM? Most  notably,  I  have   noticed  an  increase  in   energy.    I  get  up  feeling  re-­ juvenated  and  revitalized.     Even  though  I  am  working   out  harder  than  I  was  be-­ fore,  I  feel  like  I  have  more   energy  and  like  I  am  in  my   thirties  again.    I  have  also   noticed  increased  strength   DQGÀH[LELOLW\WKURXJKWKH program,  which  is  great   to  see  gains  for  someone   my  age.

“IN ORDER TO CHANGE YOUR BODY, YOU NEED TO LIFT HEAVIER WEIGHTS AND THESE EXPLOSIVE LIFTS THAT WE’RE PERFORMING IN THE POWER PROGRAM GET YOUR HEART RATE UP.”

WHY DID YOU JOIN THE POWER PROGRAM? I do  the  POWER  program   to  stay  in  shape.    For  me   this  includes  looking  good   on  the  outside,  feeling   good  on  the  inside,  and   preventing  disease  and   health  problems.    I  also   stopped  lifting  weights   after  college  and  I  needed   something  to  get  me  back   into  resistance  training.

WHAT IS A COMMON MISCONCEPTION WHEN WOMEN HEAR “POWER” FROM THE POWER PRO-­ GRAM? I believe  many  women   think  that  they  are  going   to  get  big  and  bulky  if  they   perform  some  of  the  Olym-­ pic  lifts  that  are  involved   in  the  POWER  program.     This  simply  is  not  true.    In   fact,  after  being  in  the  pro-­ gram  for  a  while,  I  noticed   that  I  really  started  to  see   a  lot  of  tone  throughout   my  body.    In  addition,  an-­ other  misconception  is  that   women  might  be  hesitant   to  try  the  program  because   of  fear  of  injury.    The  train-­

Snickers Ice Cream Bar, not Cold Stone Oreo Crème (like it size)! Okay, we know this is not the healthiest snack, but every once and a while we all have to splurge for something sweet— especially a cold ice cream for those hot days. While it may seem like it is high in calories, a snickers ice cream bar has 180 calories over the 440 in the Cold Stone Oreo Crème. It still has a fair amount of fats (11g) and sugars (15g), but it beats the 31 grams of fat or the 38 grams of sugar at Cold Stone.

The   WHO   recommends   acupuncture   for   more   than   100   diseases,   and   before   the   intro-­ duction   of   West-­ ern   medicine   to   China,   they   used   TCM   to   treat   practically   every-­ thing.    Today,  it  is   commonly   used   to   treat   pain,   headaches   and   migraines,   carpal   tunnel,   arthritis,   infertility,   neuro-­ logical   disorders,   insomnia,   stress,   anxiety/depres-­ sion,   addictions,   allergies   and   much   more!     My   website,   www.7StarAcupuncture,   has   a   complete   listing

on  people  interacting   with  each  other  at  the   event;͞  by  shortening  the   course,  it  will  give  more   people  the  opportu-­ nity  to  cross  paths  with   someone  who  could   become  a  long-­time   workout  partner.
